The UMA holds courses and exams for both Markers and Umpires throughout the year, as well as regular meetings to engage and refresh the knowledge of current Members.

They have a duty to provide Umpires and Markers for all Federation Events as well as for Federated Tournaments run by the Clubs themselves.
All Clubs are encouraged to have their Members sign up for courses, at no charge to the Clubs or those taking the course.

Dates for the coming season's Umpires Course will soon be announced.

Congratulations to those who qualified by passing their Umpire's Exams and to those who passed their Marker's Exams in the season just finished. We look forward to seeing your new expertise on show in the coming season.
